Two FedEx employees are accused of having stolen nearly $50,000 worth of shipped tech devices.

Packages containing more than 90 cellphones and an Apple Watch were taken from a FedEx hub in Hutchins, Texas, police said. The suspects were identified as Wade Hal, 58, and Larry Poole, 47, FOX 4 News of Dallas-Fort Worth reported.

Hal and Poole allegedly paid the hub’s manager and a security guard “to turn their face the other way” while they stuffed backpacks with the packages, the report said. But a warehouse manager alerted officers Wednesday to monitor two employees he suspected were stealing from the company, the Dallas Morning News reported.

When Hal and Poole arrived for work, the manager and a security team watched them unload trailers at the business, according to an arrest warrant cited in the report. The officers then confronted the duo and discovered 94 cellphones and an Apple Watch — with a total value of $48,390, according to warrants.
